Educational Philosophy: This is a course that provides you the opportunity to expand your knowledge of programming and web development to create more dynamic and data-driven applications. The homework exercises provides you the opportunity to demonstrate your creativity, problem solving, web design, using resources and debugging capabilities and is a great way to start a web portfolio. Web development content changes daily. So, you will also learn how to locate the latest information to keep your web skills always up to date! Although this class is online, we are a class, a community of learners. In information technology fields it is important to work with other professionals. Weekly discussion threads provide you with ample opportunity to practice the skills you learn in the readings, lectures and samples and opportunities wot work with your fellow students. So although this is an online class, you will be doing many hands-on activities as you learn how to develop ASP.NET web programs.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
All Park University courses must include a core assessment tool that measures the degree to which students learn the course's learning outcomes. School policy dictates that a student's performance on the core assessment tool must count for at least 20% of the student's total course grade. School policy also dictates that the core assessment tool must cover at least 75% of a course's learning outcomes.
For this course, the core assessment tool is a final exam. Teachers must create their own final exam. In creating the final exam, teachers must follow the guidelines found in the CS322 Core Assessment Materials section of the password-protected ICS PirateNet faculty area, https://piratenet.park.edu/ics/Offices/ICS/Faculty.jnz.
In the final exam, there should be two broad categories of questions that we evaluate separately – concepts and problem solving:
Concepts (terminology and concepts that should be memorized): relevant learning outcomes – 1
Multiple-choice and true/false questions that ask the student about CS 322 concepts.
Short answer questions that ask the student to explain various concepts and trace and debug code fragments and/or programs.
Problem solving (technical skills, critical thinking, and communication):
relevant learning outcomes – 2, 3, 4, 5
Given a problem description, produce a solution in the form of a short program or a method(s).
Recommended guideline for evaluating the core assessment final exam:
Does not meet expectations
65% to 84%
no exam graded
50% to 74%
Participate in each of the 8 weekly discussions according to the discussion rubric. You will have at least 3 topics each week which include content, programming and problem solving in web development. You will be required to participate in each one. Note that the discussions are listed in the menu as bullet items.
Students have often “missed” questions by only posting a response to one
question, resulting in significant points being lost. Students must
participate in each discussion thread twice, once for the initial post
and one response posting. All due dates and times in the course are based on Central Standard Time Zone, because that is where the Parkville main campus is located.
The only way to really learn how to program, is to actually program. The weekly discussion threads will include additional non-graded activities such as creating small web programs which you will upload in the discussion area. Why? Although you are required to complete the activity, it is not graded as “wrong” or “right”, rather its practice. We learn how to prevent errors by learning also how to locate and identify errors. Working with each other, we can learn to debug code faster, better, and develop into stronger programmers. Failure to try or submit the practice activity will result in loss of points. You are required to post a reply to your fellow student in each discussion thread. Please note that some discussions require you to post specific responses, such as reviewing another student's code and providing suggestions on how to enhance the program.
Complete the quizzes which may contain a combination of short answer, true and false, and multiple choice questions. But, most of them are multiple choice type questions. These questions are to help prepare you for the final exam. There will be about 15 questions on the quizzes (30 on the first quiz), which will all be taken online in Online Classroom and are timed. They will be auto-graded and you will receive you score immediately after taking the quiz. However, you will not get to see the answers until the end of the week after everyone has taken the quiz. Each question has an answer posted at the end of the question with an explanation of the content for the question.
The purpose of the web project is to help you bring together all that you have learned into a single web site. Each week, you will be learning about different programming techniques and tools used to build web sites with ASP.NET. You MUST use C# with ASP.NET and create the project using Visual Studio. Details on the assignment requirements and grading rubric will be provided in the online classroom.
Complete a proctored comprehensive final exam during week 8 which will contain short answer, multiple choice and short answer questions and programming problems which require you to create and write web programs manually! This is a department approved final exam. The final exam is OPEN book and notes BUT no computer other than for typing your responses! You must follow the Park University procedures for obtaining an approved proctor.
Please refer to the
rubrics in the Online Classroom for information on the grading criteria for
discussion postings and web project! To receive an A letter
grade, a student must consistently show excellent work above those of
his or her peers. Please refer to the grading rubrics for information on
what level of performance on each assignment is expected for each
grade. You will have access to the course two weeks prior to the start of the course.

Late Submission of Course Materials:
Discussion Assignment due dates will be provided when it is assigned and on the Course Schedule. No late assignments will generally be accepted. Please plan accordingly. Occasionally there are weather problems on campuses, technical outages
or other problems that may interfere with a student having access to the
online courses. Instructors may modify these dates if needed. Students
will be notified of changes in the schedule in the weekly Course
Announcements. The instructor will generally not accept late assignments. Exceptions may be made are for military deployment or similar circumstances (as determined at the sole discretion of the instructor). The instructor may require verification and has discretion to approve the late submission. Technical difficulties, problems with computer software, web server, work schedule or other problems are not excuses for late homework. If your assignment is late, you will receive a 0 for the assignment. However, the instructor does grade the code and gives credit even if the assignment is incomplete or does not function correctly. You are BETTER off turning in your assignment, then skipping it! Failure to follow directions in submitting the assignment may results in losing up to a full letter grade on the assignment. We support our active and deployed military and our disabled students! Exceptions which may be made are for military deployment or similar circumstances as determined by the instructor who may require you to submit documentation to support your request to submit an assignment late.
Plan Your Time Wisely
The best way to learn how to program web sites is by actually
programming a web site. Therefore, discussions in this class consists of
coding assignments and in your web programming project you will create a
complete web site. You cannot expect to start your discussions on
Friday and have it finished. Friday is the final due date for your first
posting. We recommend posting the first discussions by Wednesday night.
Learning web development is challenging even in a 16-week course. This
course is as rigorous and comparable in learning outcomes and
requirements to a 16-week course. Therefore, you should review the
discussion assignments and begin them as early as possible during the
week. That way, you can receive help during the week from your
instructor and classmates.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: You are required to review and comply with the requirements listed in the Course Overview in the Online Classroom. Here are some of the highlights. Contact the instructor through the online Instructor Office/Ask the Instructor page. Contact the instructor by email for grade related questions. The Student Forum is a discussion thread for students, for you to
communicate with your students and get additional help, like a large
student study group where the instructors drop in to help.
All due dates and times in the course are based on CST, Central Standard
Time Zone, because that is where the Parkville main campus is
located. If an extra credit assignment is provided it will be announced in week 7 and will be due by Friday of week 8.
Below is a tentative schedule of the topics, readings, and assignments. Always read the lecture first. Remember that the discussions have practice programs that are required! You can get started on the readings before the course starts!

Academic Honesty:Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life. Park University students and faculty members are encouraged to take advantage of the University resources available for learning about academic honesty (www.park.edu/current or http://www.park.edu/faculty/).from Park University 2012-2013 Undergraduate Catalog Page 97
Plagiarism:Plagiarism involves the use of quotations without quotation marks, the use of quotations without indication of the source, the use of another's idea without acknowledging the source, the submission of a paper, laboratory report, project, or class assignment (any portion of such) prepared by another person, or incorrect paraphrasing. from Park University 2012-2013 Undergraduate Catalog Page 95
Do your own work! If for some reason you implement third-party code, it must be clearly identified.
Failure to clearly separate and document use of any third party code may result in a 0 for the entire assignment. Hiring anyone to help or code the web site for you in any way will result in an automatic F (0 points) in the assignment and may result in failure in the course at the instructor's discretion. If it is learned that you have hired or plagiarized your work after the course has been completed, the instructor will recommend the University to change the grade to an F and other consequences may result. Please refer to the University policies in the Student Handbook.
Attendance Policy:Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.
